1) Cut out two pieces of fleece. One big enough to fit all the way around your child, with some flow-y room. And another piece that is about half the width, and 1 1/2 times the length of your first piece.
Mine were about 36x17", and 56x7", which makes about a 2T size.
2) Then lay your longer piece on top of the first piece, and make pleats until they are the same length.3) At the top, cut slits every couple of inches that are about half the width of your ribbon, through all the layers, then weave your ribbon in and out of each hole.
5) Cut two tiny holes right next to each other for your ties. Do this for as many ties as you'd like, on both sides.
